Sunday Morning with Mahalia Jackson

Mahalia Jackson

There are some out there who consider Mahalia Jackson on the the greatest Gospel singers who ever lifted her voice in praise. After listening to her, I don't think I could argue that point at all. Among those who thought it was the illustrious man himself, Dr. Martin Luther King. In fact, she was handpicked to follow his "I Have A Dream" speech with her joyful How I Got Over.

Now I am not sure I could offer up the name of a more iconic Gospel song than Amazing Grace. To hear Mahalia sing it is an experience, indeed.
